So while conducting some very rudimentary, non Fangraphs quantum calculations analysis, I have come to the following conclusions that Bochy is hereby ordered to read and abide by:
Rowand was 25-73 (.342) w/ 4 HRs batting 7th before todays suckfest. He went 1-3 today, so he still has a decent average at #7 spot, but left 2 RISP.
Winn's best position is #5, where he is 30 for 87 (.345). Went 3-5 today in #5 spot...I like him here! Garko behind him is apparently not a good idea.
I like Velez in the leadoff spot (NEEDS to learn to steal), but after yesterday's performance I found an interesting fact: he's batting .156 (5-32) when playing 2B. Started at 2B, 0-5 today. Freddy come back! Velez only hits well playing the OF.
I initially thought I'd go with a Pablo - Nate 3-4 so Pablo would get him more ABs (and because Nate is hitting .471 at cleanup), but I can handle Nate then Pablo. All of Pablo's HRs minus one have come at the 3rd slot, but batting cleanup you can't complain about his .455 avg.
I think this is the winning combo. Bochy, stop using your huge French brain and just go with logic. And for fricks sake, stop removing Nate from the lineup. Just stop. I say Nate ends season over .310 if given daily opportunities. But here it is, my lineup of guaranteed victory!
Garko (1B) (away ONLY..4-30 at home) (Ishikawa at AT&T ONLY .349 at home!)
Renteria (.362 batting 8th spot)or Uribe (.325 in 8th spot) (SS)
